Turkish company NetDC started out in 2004 with IRCd hosting services. By 2014, it was offering hosting, servers, and co-location services to individual and corporate clients. Today, NetDC offers a variety of web hosting services, VPS/VDS/dedicated servers, web design solutions, and domain services.
This company claims to have closed almost 10,000 hosting sales, registered more than 2,500 domains, and resolved nearly 6,000 support requests. It says it has accumulated more than 1,250 happy customers to date.
Although NetDC’s website is available in both Turkish and English languages, several pages don’t translate well into English, and many of the Turkish pages contain dummy text.
Features and Ease of Use
NetDC offers three SSD shared hosting plans, six reseller hosting plans, three IRCd hosting plans, eight VDS/VPS plans, four dedicated servers, and eight physical servers (in Turkey). The shared hosting plans provide you with:
- CloudLinux OS
- cPanel/WHM control panel
- Hosting for one website
- 1 GB to unlimited disk space
- Unlimited traffic
- Unlimited databases and email accounts
- Free SSL
- Weekly backups
The cPanel/WHM control panel’s MultiPHP extension means you can install a newer version of PHP without having to install the extensions used by your previous version.
You get a 96.8% uptime guarantee, which is significantly lower than the industry average, but you can request a refund for any month in which the uptime falls below the specified level.
The CloudLinux operating system with CageFS isolates customers from one another, thus making your system more stable and secure. Hosted customers get individual CPU, I/O, and memory resources that are unaffected by other users who use high system resources. Your hosting is made even more stable, efficient, and fast thanks to the use of LiteSpeed Web Server rather than the slower Apache. SSD and SAS storage provide the final performance and reliability improvements compared with traditional HDD storage.
Pricing and Support
NetDC’s shared hosting plans are dirt cheap. You can pay for them in various currencies (USD, EUR, GBP, and TRY) on various billing cycles (yearly, biennially, and triennially). The longer the billing cycle, the bigger the discount.
Customer support can be accessed via live chat, email, or online form, but one area of the website stipulates that telephone support costs extra. Since the live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, I emailed instead, but I received no response. You won’t fare much better with the self-support resources since the blog contains just three tutorials and the knowledge base is almost empty:
